The Pet Corrector™ emits a hiss of compressed gas which produces a broad spectrum sound (white noise) varying from a low frequency rumble to a high frequency hiss to interrupt a dog’s unwanted behavior.
The overall effect is to grab the attention of a dog. Dogs exhibit a wide range of reactions according to their hearing sensitivity and prior conditioning. Nevertheless, almost all dogs initially react to the Pet Corrector because the sound is genetically programmed to be associated with danger, such as from the hiss of a snake, an angry swan or the buzz of a dangerous insect.
What is it used for?
The Pet Corrector interrupts many unwanted behaviours but is most often used for the following:
- Jumping up
- Stealing food
- Place avoidance
An essential combination tool with reward-based training methods.
The Pet Corrector is not just for dogs. On Dr Mugford's farm in the UK, one young horse has a playful (and cruel) tendency to chase and bite sheep. Another, enjoyed chewing post and rail fences. Both 'misbehaviours' can be interrupted, even from a distance, by the Pet Corrector.
Cats can misbehave too! The Pet Corrector can be used effectively to interrupt their stalking and catching birds and to stop them using furniture as scratching posts.
Finally, always make sure that training is fun, keep trianing sessions short and always finish on a positive note. You can find out about other useful accessories to help improve your pet's behaviour on our problem pages.
